Lots to Do - Buttons and or Beads
This is my entry for this weeks Lots to Do , which is Buttons and or Beads.
As I was looking through my old photos trying to decide which one to use I found these two. They are of John and Martha Turnbull who were relations of my Father Eddie Lavery ( cousins I think).
I loved the style of Johns little trousers with the huge straps with the buttons on them, and also the buttons up the side of little Marthas boots.
I made this simple page by adding some vintage photo ink to a waxed page to bring out the patturn on the paper , and then replicated the straps on Johns trousers and added some buttons to the bottom of the straps.
On the single photo of Martha she has her eyes closed which is such a shame as she was a pretty little thing. I love her little boots and the bow in her hair is massive bless her.
Thanks for stopping by my blog its much appriciated.
